Shredded Beef Sliders with Carrot Apple Slaw

Monday, February 28, 2011

31 Comments

I think the best way to cook a beef roast is in the slow cooker. I love that I can spend about ten minutes puttering in the kitchen, then I sit back for eight hours and, as if by magic, I have a pot of juicy, tender, wonderfully flavorful beef.  Speaking of beef, this is […]

Texas Cottage Pie

It would be fair to say we are a beef eating family. So, when Foodbuzz sent me an email about an opportunity to pair up with the Texas Beef Council* to share some fun recipes featuring lean beef I found it very hard to say no.  With that said, over the next few weeks I […]

Steak Chili

I think we got about eight inches of snow overnight. Some of you may read that and say, ‘So what?’  So plenty!  You see, this is Dallas and in these parts even the lightest dusting of the white stuff can bring our bustling metropolis to a screeching halt.  Imaging what four days of ice, topped […]

Crab Jalapeno Hushpuppies

I love hushpuppies. I mean, who does not like golden grown, deep fried balls of delicious cornbread?  When I was growing up we had them with fried fish and shrimp dinners and they were the item I ate most greedily.  These days I make hushpuppies for all sorts of occasions and I have found they […]

Jalapeno Cheddar Pigs in Blankets

Thursday, January 20, 2011

50 Comments

Ok, sometimes you need things … I am serious when I say need. A few days ago I was discussing pigs in blankets with some friends on the Twitter.  It became apparent to me that, despite our love of the finer things, a good old-fashioned pig in a blanket could reduce us to children.  Happy, […]

Chorizo Dip

I find when guests come to visit that a good dip can make the evening. I’m not sure what it is exactly about dip that is so enticing, but I do know that a good dip recipe, or two, can be a life saver.  Perhaps it is the communal aspect of dips, the fact that […]

Cornbread Topped Turkey and Green Chile Casserole

The day after Thanksgiving I tend to bag up some of my left-over turkey and freeze it. I love knowing that I have, in my freezer, the means to make any number of easy weeknight meals.  From pot pies to tetrazzini, frozen turkey meat is a good thing to have on hand.  This year I […]

Queso Chicken Pasta

For the last few weeks I have been terribly busy.   When life starts to pile up on me, and lately that happens a lot, I crave easy meals that offer a lot of comfort.  Comfort, for me, comes in the form of cheesy pasta with a Tex-Mex kick.  I know I have mentioned before my […]

Shredded Garlic Beef Tacos With Pickled Onions

I am developing an obsession with tacos. A few weekends ago my husband and I spent a VERY long afternoon at Mayfest, an art and sports fair, where I was preforming with my belly dance class.  Did I say it was a long day?  By the time I was finished I was hot, dusty, blistered, […]
